Nope.
In a democracy, everyone has equal access to power. If you are born into the "office" of monarch- you are delegated as HEAD OF STATE- and no one else has this access, than you do not live in a democracy.
That is what is meant by NOMINAL head of state, which I have posted many dozens of times.
If the USA declared that you were the head of state, the king, and that 'office' would be passed down from you to your son (or daughter) forever, if the only thing you did (as king) was to throw out the first ball of the first game of the baseball season: the USA would not be a democracy any more.
No matter how many times you spam the board.
PS: the monarch in the UK nominates the PM, sings off on all new laws, declares wars, and has the power, no matter how hard SuperFAG & et al. stomp their feet: to dismiss the elected government.
Yes

Your ignorance, limited intellect and understanding is no excuse

Don’t be jealous just because the US democratic political system is based in the British system, we have been around a lot longer

The very fact that Wales and Scotland have devolved governments is a result of that democracy

How Democratic is the UK? The 2012 Audit
It is doubtful that any political scientist would dispute that the UK is a democracy. Across a variety of international indices, compiled by a range of academic and non-academic research institutes, the UK is consistently categorised as a ‘full democracy’. The UK has never failed to meet Freedom House’s benchmark for ‘electoral democracies’ since the organisation began using the designation in 1989. Taking a longer view, the Polity IV database records the UK as one of a handful of countries that have operated continually as democracies since the 1880s.

Are you too confused to settle on a screen name? How many more god given aliases do you have? Tell us so we know who we are talking too. You do realise that name hopping is a known troll tactic? Not that you have the intelligence to pass yourself off as a troll but I thought I’d better explain that before you get in too deep.

Doesnt matter what I call myself or even who I am. As soon as someone refers to themselves as a believer in God you and your comrades go on the 'drippydick, cuckold, your wife ran off with a blackman' mantra.

Wrong, these people will not accept abuse from barfy butt breath (or you), As well as the repeated verbal abuse and racial name calling from barfy that you deliberately ignore, it seems that there is one other thing your ignore,“public” thread, ever considered the concept? Nope not barfys thread but a public thread in which opinions may be offered, any opinions, whether you or barfy agrees with them or not.
And it’s no use buttering up to barfy, he’ll only give you some disease that causes you drippydick syndrome to add to your brucella ovis

Verbal abuse? You mean you can hear him?
You brought the issue of black men running off with white wives and you deem your opponents to be automatically 'white' even though you have no idea about us nor can offer proof.
I could be aboriginal for all you know.

[QUOTE who="ChristineM"]
I have been consistent throughout my posts on here, which of course is what barfy butt breath hates to see. He likes to make BS statement and prays that he will not be challenged with fact.
Ever heard of dunning kruger syndrome, sounds like you are effected, too crazy to realise you are crazy
Babble.
Here you and your comrades arguing with barefoot over whether or not the UK is a monarchy. It has a Queen and a royal family, whose head is on the banknotes and coins?
Its a monarchy....get over it.
You Frankfurt School drop outs seem to be upset over the role of the Queen and yet there is N Korea which is an absolute monarchy and yet you have no problem with it.

BTW - I thought this thread was called 'In America, atheists are still in the closet'
And that they are because they are all cuckolds watching their wives with black men.

Oh Skanque: you are projecting.

I can guarantee I have given anything you have said a second thought.

Particularly things that have no basis on my reality here, e.g., my 'wife' running off with a black man (as you insist, which, as mentioned before, is a reflection on your prejudices rather than mine) not being married, or dripping penises... being a man, not caring though... obviously, you have had a lot of face time with wet dicks.

Again, saying more about you than me.

You keep insisting, sweetie, and I keep telling you men don't give a rat's ass about dripping penises.

They don't have to look at them.

And they don't roll them around in their mouths.

Eh, Skanque?

You keep bringing them up, I keep reminding you who has had the real life experience of keeping them clean.

Speaking for other men, I thank you for your work.

The USA is a democracy.

The UK is a monarchy.

Anything else, dear?

PS: We have two houses in our Congress. We elect every single member and the houses are pretty much equal strength.

And we don't have a state church which appoints members to either house.

Or even to dog catcher...

When the US looked at the UK "system", we fixed the glaring mistakes.

It isn't much of a benchmark: start with "Do you elect the head of state, yes or no"?
